Prior Oil and Gas newsletters and additional information including information for landowners in negotiating the oil and gas lease, a schedule of upcoming educational meetings, hydraulic fracturing, horizontal drilling, rights of way guidelines and other related information is available at the Oil and Gas website.

With some effort, this information can assist a landowner in the development of an oil and gas lease agreement that is a positive win–win agreement between the landowner and oil development company.
